By Katlego Suzan Phala MPL, DA Spokesperson on Transport, Safety, Security and Liaison:
The DA has learnt with shock that two toddlers were brutally murdered in Makonde village just outside Thohoyandou, recently.
The minors met their untimely death when they were allegedly attacked with a knobkerrie by their step- father while sleeping.
We call on police and the people of Limpopo to search and investigate until the man who is alleged to have murdered them and fled the scene, is arrested.
We wish to extend condolences to the family and the community in that area.
The death of these innocent lives highlights the endless plight of abuse experienced by women, children and the vulnerable in Limpopo’s homes.
I will be submitting a set of parliamentary questions to investigate the extent of effectiveness of the Department of Safety, Security and Liaison efforts on the fight against the abuse of women and children, particularly in semi-urban and rural areas.
